Coloring For Sauces Soups Etc

Melt a quarter of a pound of granulated sugar in a spider, cook until it

is a very dark, rich brown, almost black, stir constantly. Great care

must be taken that it does not burn. When done pour over it a quart of

boiling water and let it cook until the caramel is entirely dissolved,

pour it out and when cold strain and bottle. It will keep indefinitely

and a tablespoonful will give color to a pint of liquid.
